The Obama-Biden Military Clawback

Many know how badly the Obama-Biden administration financially decimated the U.S. military. Less known is how the military bureaucracy clawed back benefits, withheld full paychecks, and indebted an unknown but substantial number of service members and veterans -- many of whom had just returned from war.  

These warriors, in some cases saddled with six-figure debt, now faced a different kind of enemy -- the endless dead ends and red tape of a faceless, suffocating and swampy bureaucracy. After learning of this financial abuse from a junior Marine who’d been impacted, Shawn stepped in to help. Not before long, he himself was under investigation.

If you’ve been on social media in the last few years, chances are you’ve seen the “Trump Tank” image. You know the one: President Trump stands on top of a tank, looking ahead as fireworks and bombs explode in the background.

A History As Wild As His Artwork

From Rocky Trump to Saint Mattis to the Trump Tank, Shawn Wydle is the man behind some of today’s most viral political content. 

A Marine veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom, Wylde came up with the idea for what would soon become a multi-million dollar brand, American AF, while in federal prison. 

 What landed him in prison was the culmination of years of challenging authority figures and institutions when he believed they overstepped their bounds and hurt people with a limited ability to fight back. This includes his expulsion from the Virginia Military Institute after leading a cadet revolt against the administration, and his fight to expose Marines who’d been victimizing their Marine counterparts by harrassing them on social media.

Honorably Discharged

Evidence of Honorable discharge after prison, 100% disabled rating by the VA, how receiving disability compensation while receiving active duty pay is not illegal, and the VA reimbursing Shawn more than he was accused of stealing after prison. Shawn was passed over for promotion because he was in prison.
